For many people, particularly trans women, tucking can be both necessary and life-affirming — but there's not a lot of information out there about how to do so safely. Here's what you need to get started. Tucking is a practice, well-known in both trans and drag circles, of putting one's penis between and behind one's legs, so that it's not visible from the front of the body. Some people push their testicles back as well, while others move them upward and rest them on the lower part of their abdomen before securing them in place. There are a number of reasons why trans women tuck: both for our own sense of self, and to influence how others perceive us. For those of us who experience gender dysphoria related to the appearance of our bodies, it's a way for us to feel more like our bodies match the gender we feel inside. Tucking also allows us to navigate spaces more safely in female attire, because being identified as trans can sometimes expose us to harassment and violence. So, come to think of it, tucking is really important for many women.
Tucking is defined by the Transgender Health Information Program as ways one can hide the penis and testes, such as moving the penis and scrotum between the buttocks, or moving the testes up into the inguinal canals. The inguinal canals make up the body cavity where the testes sit before birth. Some people may also tuck for aesthetic purposes, for cosplay or drag. Tucking will allow all these individuals to achieve a smooth appearance and hide any external genitals. Learn more about talking to people who are transgender or nonbinary. Take a break, and return later. Practice tucking a few times when relaxed and in a comfortable space at home before going out. A gaff is a piece of fabric that flattens the lower body. Pantyhose can be found in most grocery and department stores and will allow you to tailor the size of the gaff for your needs. Some people may also use a panty liner before putting on underwear.

Tucking is a technique whereby an individual hides the crotch bulge of the penis and testicles so that they are not conspicuous through clothing. The practice is most commonly employed by transgender women in order to pass as cisgender female , as well as cisgender men that do drag. There are fertility-related side-effects to tucking, such as a reduced sperm count. One method of tucking involves pulling the penis backwards in between the legs while simultaneously pushing the testicles up into the inguinal canal. There are also improvised or home-made contrivances whereby an elastic waistband is cut off from an existing garment and then a pouch placed along the middle to then be pulled up.
